4:15 to 5:30 Norman Sylvester Band

We wouldn’t think of having a blues festival without having the Norman Sylvester Band on board. They consistently thrill the crowd with their dynamic, soulful sets. They have been on our good luck charm since back in the days of Ilwaco Seafood & Blues, and we are proud to have them back this year.

Norman Sylvester is one of the most engaging showmen around the Northwest. Weddings, festivals, corporate parties and club venues all call on his band for spectacular music and entertainment! Influenced from his Southern Baptist early years and the Gospel Quartet his father, Mack Sylvester, toured with (they were as sharp with their fashion as they were in their harmonies), these examples show in Sylvester’s own performance. There is the work for the paycheck and the work for your passion. Norman’s music is most definitely his passion! The Boogie Cat has paid his dues and now he is living his dreams. Sylvester’s daughter. Lenanne, brings the bling with her clear as a bell, soulful lead vocals and perfect familial harmonies.

The new CD release, and I do mean NEW “ ” continues Norman’s legacy. The Norman Sylvester Band performs for clubs, corporate parties, wedding receptions, private parties and all types of music festivals.

His band, Michael Osborn & the Drivers was extremely popular in Portland, Oregon, where he now resides. He also performs with Tony Colemans’ “Tribute to Three Kings: BB, Albert and Freddie.
